Forever-Plaid-poster“Forever Plaid, Plaid Tidings” Presented Saturday, Nov. 30

The Ellicottville Memorial Library and the Olean Community Theatre are proud to present a special Christmas edition of “Forever Plaid: Plaid Tidings,” a brand new show that offers the best of “Forever Plaid” tied up in a nifty package with a big Christmas bow on top, including veteran area performers in the lead roles! Filled with Christmas standards that have all been “Plaid-erized,” our boys are back to do their Christmas special.

At first, Francis (Shane Oschman), Jinx (Mark Lungershausen), Smudge (Nathan H. Bell) and Sparky (Tim Hollamby) aren’t sure why they’ve returned to Earth for another posthumous performance, but a phone call from the heavenly Rosemary Clooney lets them know that they’re needed to put a little harmony into a discordant world. Sprinkled among the Christmas offerings are audience favorites like their riotous three-minute-and-eleven-second version of “The Ed Sullivan Show” — this time featuring the Rockettes, the Chipmunks and the Vienna Boys Choir, and a Plaid Caribbean Christmas that puts the “Day-O” in excelsis!

This truly “heaven-sent” holiday treat will lift audiences’ spirits and remind youngsters that not all good music has to be auto tuned.

Mark your calendars! You won’t want to miss “Forever Plaid: Plaid Tidings,” a special Christmas edition directed by Ardyth Van Scoy!

The event will take place at the St. Paul’s Lutheran Church on Saturday, Nov. 30 at 7 pm. Tickets are $10 for adults and $5 for children 12 and under, and are available at the library and at the door the night of the event (if not sold out).

The Ellicottville Memorial Library is proud to sponsor the fifth annual Winter Theatre In Ellicottville program, funded in part by the New York State Council on the Arts decentralization Regrant Program administered by the Cattaraugus County Arts Council.
